Being sick really sucks. There’s no way around it. It’s not like you can plan the time when you’re sick “Yeah, I’d like to schedule being ill during the month of March, dates? Yeah – 12th and 13th.”
Sadly, it just doesn’t work that way. Fortunately, I am the Queen of making my own fun, so after sleeping (A LOT) I watched a movie I’ve been meaning to see for quite some time – “Big Fish.” It’s different than what I was expecting. For starters, the first hour wasn’t any good. I kept watching it going, “Now, what is the point of this movie?” They had me at the end though, when you discover that most of what the father said in his stories was true, but still, you shouldn’t have to sit for 2 hours for a movie to get decent.
Speaking of movies, been rewriting “Xia” for the ASA/Gotham Screenplay contest. Due date Oct. 31st. It is quite different from the original screenplay, but closer in tone and events to the novel. I am enjoying the process but will be quite glad when the whole thing is over with. I’ve had this story in my head since I was 16. Time to set it free.
